Botox will get rid of those
The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have approved Botox injections to treat excessive underarm sweating. It works by blocking a chemical in the body that activates the sweat glands. Dysport is another great option for this area.
According to the International Hyperhidrosis Society, underarm Botox injections can reduce underarm sweating by 82–87%. The effects can typically last 4–12 months, or up to 14 months in some cases.
If you’d like to rid the sweat, Botox or Dysport is your answer.

What to expect at your Botox for underarms appointment in Ben Avon, Pennsylvania
At your appointment, your trouble areas will be evaluated and we will help assess how much Botox or Dysport you will need and where. You will be assessed in a private room where you can share all your concerns and goals with your provider so you can create a plan together.
Your Certified Aesthetic Nurse Practitioner will draw up the Botox or Dysport in front of you and then treat the chosen areas with small, targeted doses. Before injecting the Botox or Dysport, your provider will clean the area. The injections take 5-10 minutes total and feel like a quick pinch. Most people share that Botox or Dysport is painless and is a very quick procedure.
After being treated with Dysport, you will see small little bumps that look like mosquito bites. This is absolutely normal and expected! This should go away within 30 minutes of your treatment once the Botox or Dysport has settled. You may experience slight bruising at the injection site but that can be avoided by eliminating caffeine, alcohol and aspirin 24-48 hours pre-treatment.
Results can be expected within 3-5 days after treatment with Dysport and 7-14 days with Botox. Treatments last 3-4 months. Multiple rounds of treatment will allow for longer time between treatments in the future.
Avoid swimming, hot tubs, working out, or rubbing your face for at least 48 hours after treatment. Please view the full Post Treatment Instructions for more information.
